It’s official: Pretty Lights will be headlining Euphoria Music Festival at Carson Creek Ranch in Austin, TX during it’s April 10-12, 2015 weekend.
Derek Vincent Smith has become reclusive of late, as he’s burrowed into the studio, hard at work on his next full-length album. While we’re unsure when the album will be complete, what we do know is that Smith’s Pretty Lights sets have been few and far between in the interim, and this early spring festival is a sign of more to come as festival season 2015 begins to shape up.
Our thoughts jumped immediately to Halloween after Labor Day. That’s just how we operate. When we looked ahead in our calendars at the year 2014, we noticed that the night of tricks and treats fell on a Friday and we got as giddy as the guy who figures out his costume on November 1 of the previous year.

Ultra Music Festival has made a handful of major changes as of late; first, it was the 18+ age restriction that was announced in early September. Now, Miami’s flagship event has announced it will undergo even greater alterations for its upcoming year. For the first time in Ultra history, General Admission ticket prices have been reduced as a ‘thank you’ to its fans for growing the festival’s base over the last 17 years. GA tickets will go on sale at 1pm EST on September 30th for $499.95 – about a $50 decrease since 2014′s event.

With Burning Man just two weeks away, we’ve learned some very exciting news. Carl Cox and crew will be headed to the Playa this year to build their very own camp. According to UK ticketing outlet Skiddle, who spoke to key members of Cox’s team in late July, Carl’s camp will be titled The PlayGround Experience and will occupy a space “that is probably bigger than Glastonbury.” As is the fashion of various other techno mega-camps, Robot Heart being the most obvious, it will be more about the experience and less about the names on the bill. In fact, Carl Cox’s name will likely not be associated with the camp at all according to Yoms, the camp coordinator for The PlayGround Experience.
A few days ago, Mad Decent’s annual Block Party had a lot of festival-goers up in arms about its extensive restrictions on what attendees weren’t allowed to bring with them, and while some of these banned items were obvious (drugs, weapons, fireworks, etc.), plenty of other items that were also banned (LED lights, pacifiers, and even Kandi bracelets) had much of the EDM community thinking the restrictions were going too far, including Insomniac’ Events founder, Pasquale Rotella. Out of the plethora of things attendees weren’t allowed to bring to the Block Party, however, they were allowed to bring an empty CamelBak Water Pack. Not only unbelievably convenient for day-long raging outside in the heat, a CamelBak also ends up becoming a beacon for safety at a festival to anyone else who you come across that needs a drink — there’s no telling how many people have been saved from dehydration all thanks to a friend or a kind stranger carrying this nifty knapsack of water.
After an extremely successful TomorrowWorld in the USA, Tomorrowland is looking to have a South American edition next year. Sao Paolo in Brazil looks to be the site for the latest installment of this smashing festival. Known for its fascinating locations and moving after-movies, Tomorrowland’s reputation continues to shine at the top of the dance music festival competition. The information about a Sao Paolo date was first broken via Omelete, a Brazilian entertainment website. Sources indicate that the festival’s organizers have already signed a contract to solidify this Brazil edition. While an exact location is not yet known, signs are pointing to Parque Maeda, just an hour away from the city of Sao Paolo. The 10th edition of Tomorrowland is taking place over this weekend and the following one as well, and you can catch the action on a live stream via YouTube.
